By Janakiram MSV – Industry thought leader/ Technical review by Kin Lane – API Evangelist
Containers and microservices are redefining the software development lifecycle. Developers are empowered to choose best of the breed languages, frameworks, and runtimes to develop software. DevOps teams are dealing with new packaging and deployment mechanisms. Container orchestration tools such as Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Apache Mesos are changing the way applications are deployed and managed.
In this new environment, APIs become more important for developers to integrate with internal and external data sources. Through its API-first approach, DreamFactory enables developers in building data-driven, web-scale workloads. Through its support for a variety of relational, NoSQL, and cloud databases, developers can stay focused in building the core business logic instead of dealing with the plumbing required to integrate databases.
